A family of herons visited the smaller pond in Victoria Park this evening. To far out for a phone really. A few live photos knocked together with @snapthread and the quality removed with Handbreak.

Small Copper

Quite a lot of rain recently, but we had a dry hour or so, some sun a a fairly strong breeze.

A few blue damselflies and smallish red dragonflies along the path. Sheltered by the bracken which is starting to droop, lots of flowers go to seed. Scabious coming up strongly.

Scabious

A few peacock butterflies on the knapweed, a small copper on the path, the odd painted lady and white but fewer than recently.

I love seeing wood pigeons flighting in the wind. The Black Linn was full of rain water.
